Published Date: May 2017

There are some places you
would not want to go.

This Raging Light: But Then I Came Back

Author: Estelle Laure

Published Date: 6th April 2017
RRP: £7.99

Estelle Laure is a bright new talent with a gorgeous voice - perfect for fans of John Green and Rainbow Rowell.

Eden has always let her head lead the way. It's why she excels at ballet, at school, and at life in general. But when she nearly drowns and then wakes from a month-long coma, everything is different. She's troubled by dreams that seem more real than waking life, and her neat cookie-cutter existence is no longer satisfying.

Unable to stifle her passionate heart anymore, she finds herself drawn to a boy with melting-chocolate eyes, and to a future different to what she ever imagined.

That's when Eden discovers that when it comes to love, first you fall, then you have to leap.
